the role of members' employers

Employers of CIPFA members and registered students have a key role in ensuring the maintenance of standards within the accountancy profession.

The role of an employer of a CIPFA member or registered student includes bringing to the attention of the Institute’s Disciplinary Scheme concerns about the conduct of members and registered students and assisting any enquiries or proceedings that are undertaken about a member or registered student.

The Guide for Employers of CIPFA members explores the regulatory implications of being an employer of a CIPFA member or registered student. It outlines the employer’s regulatory role and identifies the standards expected of CIPFA members and registered students, issues that should be brought to the attention of the Disciplinary Scheme and the responsibilities of employers who are themselves CIPFA members or registered students.
